Roach Still Disappointed Over Manny-Mayweather
Still disappointed four years after Manny Pacquiao’s loss to Floyd Mayweather, trainer Freddie Roach is hopeful a rematch can be scheduled after Pacquiao faces Keith Thurman on July 20th.
“Hopefully we can get Mayweather to come to the table,” Roach told reporters at his Wild Card gym on Wednesday. “I would like us to have one more crack at him.”
“We didn’t fight a great fight that night. Manny’s shoulder didn’t help at all. He’s had surgery since then, he’s 100 percent now.
“I would like us to fight Mayweather again because I didn’t like the way we performed. I was disappointed in myself,” Roach continued.
“Floyd is retired. I am only looking at active fighters. Floyd is not active anymore,” Pacquiao said on the subject. “Right now I’m only thinking about Thurman.”
